Long ago, the bow and arrow was the ultimate technological achievement. It was used by Genghis Khan to forge an empire that stretched across Asia, from the wintry woods of Ukraine to the Eastern shores of Korea. Now, whoever holds the weapons manufactured by Stark Industries rules the world... and soon, it will be my turn.
~ Raza to Tony Stark.

Raza is the secondary antagonist of the 2008 film, Iron Man. He is a terrorist and a high-ranking member of the Ten Rings.

He was portrayed by Faran Tahir.

In the Movie

Cooperation with Obadiah Stane

Raza was one of the leaders of the terrorist group known as The Ten Rings. After a secret agreement with Obadiah Stane, Raza captured Tony Stark, who was in Afghanistan displaying the Jericho Missile. Raza wanted Tony to build him one of the missiles for his own use (he was originally supposed to kill Tony, but they came to consider him more useful alive). He called Stark "The most famous mass murderer in the history of America," and then went on to say that he was "honored" to meet him.

Stark's First Armor and Escape

Despite Raza's guards watching the prisoners day and night, Tony managed to build an armor to save himself and his fellow prisoner, Yinsen. Tony managed to escape, while Yinsen was killed.

~ Raza to Obadiah Stane about Tony Stark

Later, Raza organized a meeting with Stane to conduct further deals. Stane arrived at Raza's Camp in a convoy with a squad of armed guards. That meeting ended when Stane betrayed Raza, used a special device to paralyze him in his tent, and left, but not before he had his men dispose of Raza's Guards and told them to "finish up".
